I also have the same need. I would ultize this mod in many areas.

I think a requisition module would be a great addition to odoo. A module like this would be able to define different work flows and set in approval steps based on certain criteria.

For example sticking with the purchasing theme, if user A makes a request that is beyond their purchasing limit, the request must be approved by a manager. Once the request is approved it should create a draft purchase order which would be fulfilled by the employee responsible for purchasing.

This same idea could be applied to stock move requests for parts on a work order.

Hi All

So I am not using Odoo yet in a production environment I am still trying to learn what it is capable of and how to configure it to how I want it. So my question:

If I have say 50 users in the company I do not want them all talking to and corresponding with suppliers. From my knowledge it is common practise in many companies to have a purchasing or sourcing office with a couple of employees to manage orders, RFq's and correspond with suppliers. 
In my experience an employee will create what is referred to as a "requisition/request" for goods/services . The procurement office would convert this to a PO either using an existing contract or go out on RFq if there is no supplier currently available.

How would this be done in Odoo. Is there a requisition module that does the above. I have tried Purchase Requisitions by OpenERP SA , but this gives you the option to create a requisition from a purchase order not sure the use of this. Is there a way to do the above?

(Ideally having approval on the requisition document would be the way forward as well)

Thanks in advance
